, medicare would pass with 55 votes, 55. the filibuster did not even figure into lbj's planning. that all changed in recent decades. now everything gets filibustered, big things like health care reform are filibustered and small things like who gets to be nominated ambassador or sit on the national labor relations board. the problem with the filibuster in one sentence is it made the senate into something it was never intended to be, a place that requires a super majority to get anything, anything at all no matter how small or necessary done. defenders of the filibuster tend to say it is about minority rights or the constitution's preference for making hard to get anything done, and it is important to know that that is not true. yes, the founding fathers wanted to make governing hard. it is why they divided power among three branchs and it is why senators used to be directly appointed by state legislatures and why the house, the senate, and the president have staggered elections. usually you need a big win in two or monday consecutive elections in order for a party to secure control of con

that $716 billion was essentially taken or stolen from medicare to pay for obamacare. we do know that hospitals are arguably going to have 247 billion less to care for the same number of seniors than if the law had not passed. so purse strings, is that a way that congress can somehow attack obamacare? >> well, john boehner was talking about whatever powers congress has to change obamacare, and you're absolutely right spending is part of that. and also, you know, the big parts of obamacare aren't in effect yet, the mandate, the insurance exchanges, all of these things that make up the heart, the expansion of medicaid that make up the heart of obamacare are not here yet. congress will be keeping a very close eye on those and will probably try to make changes as we go along. gregg: gregg: there is a growing body of evidence in one study in particular that says up to 80% of americans that are eligible for obama care have no idea what is going on. could that jeopardize a system that depends on having many people involved? >> yeah, well some of the test programs, for example in high-ri

of medicare for everyone under 55 years old. our messages stick no carat. we don't have a forward vision of economic growth, how to create it or sustain it that's in the interest of the middle class and we paid a tremendous penalty for that over the course of this election. so the republican party as a demographic problem. it has a message problem. it has a policy problem which and then in the expect cushion of the campaigns it has a technology program. the obama campaign in 2012 was ten light years ahead from a technology perspective being tible identify voters, target voters, turn out voters. and republican party through this defeat is going to need to go through a cycle of invasion to catch up and pass the democrats in our ability to do that over the next couple of years. what i would say lastly is when you look at the republican party today on issues from gay marriage to immigration to education reform, republicans have always thriveed. we have embraced our small government, limited government and the principles of fed raism which have endured and served the country well for over two

with medicare and medicaid. they do not do much oversight. they do not try to track waste, fraud, and abuse. one of the ways that would reform things, when you think about how much money we in theory spend on a family of three or four, i would give cash to that family to make sure that they can first be above the poverty line. but also i would not treat them like a child by saying this little amount you can spend on housing, this little amount -- i would not infantilize poor people on welfare like we do today. host: elizabeth lower-basch? guest: president nixon did propose a lower income tax. host: would you support it? guest: it has a lot of appeal. it really does. guest: the current system really infantilizes people. it says not only are you poor, but we are going to tell you how to live your life. it creates a lot of disincentive to take your life in your own hands and take care of your children in the best way that you see fit. parents are the best to know, even if they need help. guest: i think there is this tension of wanting to let people make choices and recognizing that people may have

are they getting federal funds, medicaid, medicare money. when you have to look at it, a lot of religion and -- is there any groups that are targeting that area? >> i will be really quick and this one and say yes, we are. a lot of the advocacy organizations including ours are working on moving forward to change -- they're called religious exclusion clauses. so there is a coalition of organizations and it cuts across the entire progressive movement that are looking at where these religious exclusion clauses show up and are strategizing about how to deal with at. last caveat is religious freedom that has already been noted here, talk about who said something about so-called values. you even go to touch it, it brings up the kind of fervor you can't even imagine. almost a fury. i can say that as an ordained minister, that is stunning coming from people who are people of faith but there's a lot of work happening in coalitions looking to look at -- you have to investigate where the problems are and determine the best strategy for doing that and we do have -- we have a very strong faith compone
